    Worst Internet provider by a country mile.
    I was informed by customer service to go and buy my own router if I wanted better WiFi coverage around the house.
    Still no better, constantly cuts off and getting online via WiFi at peak times is a nightmare.
    Avoid plusnet at all costs.

    Sorry to be a party pooperon this forum of slagging off your ISP, but I have been a Plusnet customer for about 5 years and have just renewed. They are a little cheaper than BT and their router is a hand me down from that company. However their service has improved considerably over the years. I still use their original IEC modem which is connected to a sinology router. I get consistent high speed and have had no issues apart from when we had a power cut and the Synology router went off piste, but Plusnet tech helped me sort the problem even though it wasn't their router. So I can recommend them. So there.

    I would advise against taking a contract with them. I am alone using the broadband, and still having issues. Netflix keeps disconnecting as I use it via Google Chromecast. Teams call for work are poor quality and often need to switch video off.

    An absolutely terrible experience from this incompetent company.

    We moved into a new property in November and booked a connection slot for a fibre order in advance. Despite calling for updates, we still weren't connected a month later. I was told that it was Openreach's fault and they hadn’t booked us in.

    Openreach actually visited our property a few days after to connect us to the cabinet but when I called Plusnet, due to their sheer incompetence, they told me I couldn't have Fibre and couldn't be connected at our property. When I asked what the engineer had been doing in my property if not connecting me to fibre I was told oh, something else.

    Following this exchange and what had already been a month of waiting and additional delays I cancelled my account with them. In the end I switched to EE (both owned by BT) but miles apart in terms of the helpful, prompt customer service I received. Although we had to wait a few more weeks for the EE connection, I asked if I could have unlimited free data to hotspot while we waited for our connection and it was absolutely no problem - they were super helpful. When an engineer came back out to connect us to EE before Xmas - he found we were already running fibre to our home (!) Exactly what I suspected, despite Plusnet telling me otherwise…

    I couldn't recommend EE highly enough and though we're on the standard broadband now (due to Plusnet's mess-up with the fibre) I've got total peace of mind and feel like I'm dealing with a quality company. They even discounted my mobile bill.

    A final detail - we are still awaiting our £36.99 refund from Plusnet as of January… having just paid a petty £3.52 for the 'service' we (didn't) use in November/December. What a joke. I fully expect my 36.99+3.52 refund but am sure I'll have to call a few more times to get it.

    Avoid like the plague and go for a proper provider - BT, EE, Sky etc.

    Worst service - winners of the Wooden Spoon. In case there is an issue that you complain about, they will take a month to fix - this is written in the contract. In my case, they had restricted the broadband to a lower speed inspite of charging me for higher speed - when questioned, no word of apology or anything. You are tied in 18 months contract to cant do anything. Very unreliable speeds. Why do review sites not have less than 1*.

    I switched to Plusnet after many years with ee, we had issues with ee's service but nothing like the issues with Plusnet. When you can get their attention they say that they will check out the speed, spooling and dropping out of signal issues and then dont. An engineer did visit and said there was a fault outside our property, but it wasn't followed up. Plusnet doesn't seem fit for purpose, I'm off as soon as the contract finishes in March, I don't know who to but by God I'm off.

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!
    WORST BROADBAND PROVIDER EVER!!
    After 15 hellish months of Plusnet we have decided to pay the exit fee and return to Sky.
    15 months of having put up with constant drop outs (frequently every few minutes) making it impossible to work from home, watch Netflix, play on xboxs etc etc!
    Constantly phone calls to Plusnet customer services, 3 openreach engineer visits, 2 new routers. NOTHING HAS IMPROVED.
    ABSOLUTE SHAMBLES.

    it's a shame I can't give 0 stars. This is probably the worst broadband provide I have ever had. Their internet connection keeps dropping, wifi wors just by the router, nowhere else, but Plusnet won't give you any compensation or solution. Instead, they offer you commitment for another 12 months and advise you to buy a signal booster! Well, I didn't need anything like that when I had BT! I just spent almost an hour on the phone and got nowhere. Can't wait to get transferred to my new broadband provider.

    Do NOT attempt a house move with this shower! Gave notice on 3rd Dec that we were moving on 17th Dec. We were assured 2 weeks was plenty of notice for a smooth transition, particularly as the new property was already being supplied by Plusnet. Moving day came, hooked up router in new house as instructed and all worked fine. Excellent...we thought.
    Roll on 3 days to 20th Dec and all goes dead. Rang Plusnet to be told transfer had never happened and we had actually been inadvertantly accessing broadband through previous occupants account, which had now been closed. Told we would not be activated until 29th - so 12 days late.
    Turned to the forum for support only to be offered a smug, patronising response that it is "Boones fault", "would happen with any provider" and is "logical" that the previous occupant would cease their account. Also that we should really be grateful our order hadn't been cancelled as this is typically what happens when an account is closed. All well and good, except our service should have started on 17th as agreed so what the previous occupant then does on 20th has zero bearing on us.
    Activation day arrives (29th) and nothing happens (surprise, I know). Ring customer services again to speak to a rather confused young lady who repeatedly advised us "not to ring back" as broadband would be automatically activated some time before midnight and they would contact us (don't call them).
    Today (30th) no promised broadband and orange light on router. Provisioning team say order is complete from their end. Technical team are only able to read what it says on their screen - "connection failed, book engineer visit". Not able to give us any indication why an engineer is needed given the property was clearly being supplied by Plusnet before we moved in. So we await the engineer visit, some time between 8am and 1pm tomorrow (Possibly. If Plusnet have actually communicated this to the engineer, the engineer can be bothered and doesn't forget).
    We have so far been offered a woefully inadequate "goodwill gesture" of a month's free broadband. Given we haven't actually had any broadband for the 2 weeks since moving in, that is basically offering us 2 weeks of broadband (assuming we are even up and running in the next two weeks). If Plusnet belonged to the automatic compensation scheme, which it chooses not to be as they are avaricious rather than customer-focused, we'd be eligible for £8 per day they have failed to supply (currently 13 days and counting).
    So we've had a Christmas with no internet, TV or streaming services (subscriptions we are now out of pocket for). No video calls with family during a pandemic. Two mobile phones which we have had to fund with extra mobile data. And the prospect of working from home looming again as of next week, with no broadband. No other utilities are cut off during a house move. Why is broadband? Why can noone explain what an engineer is actually required to do?
    It's an absolute farce and not over yet. And the very worst part is the lack of customer care. These people are utterly incompetent and don't give two hoots about it.

    I am quite surprised at all the complaints about plusnet. I have been with them since 2005 and used to have a separate telephone provider. A couple of years ago' I decided it was cheaper to have just one supplier, so moved from the Post Office. In line with the industry [sub]standard, customer services if 'bad'. I am happy with the connection speed and don't experience any drops, BUT every now and again the email server seems to go offline - it does NOT affect the internet - and I have to wait a day or so for it to come back. This is not a problem since it is not my main account. My contract is up for renewal and I shall be sticking with them because everything else is so much more expensive for this light user who makes next to no phone calls from month to month.

    Contacted Plusnet to move my home Broadband from TalkTalk. Explained I only had a 14 day cooling off window with them to move before I would be tied to a new 18 month contract. This was noted and assurances given that this would be done. Plusnet also took payment for the first month. I heard nothing from either provider for over a Month and I am now stuck in a contract with TalkTalk that I did not want. I contacted Plusnet who were obviously very sorry and confirmed nothing had been done . The Customer operator organised a refund and transferred me to the complaints department to make a formal complaint. The complaints operator sounded like she had just got out of bed and told me to do it online Absolutely disgusting service from start to finish . Avoid this company.

    I contacted Plusnet to move my home broadband from TalkTalk and explained that I only had a 14 day cooling off period before my new 18 month contract started and as long as Plusnet made contract with TalkTalk I would be fine to transfer without paying a leaving penalty. This was duly noted and the first month's line rental taken.
    I did not hear from either broadband providers for 3 weeks and then a bill from TalkTalk at my new contract rate. I contacted Plusnet and they explained that they had done nothing and were very sorry. A refund was organised and I was transferred to the complaints team to make a formal complaint. The young lady sounded as if she had just got out of bed and that I should make the complaint online. Disgusting service with terrible customer support. Avoid.

    This is the worst of all Broadband providers I had to deal with. Broadband speed is below recommend OFCOM speed guarantee. Even when writing this review I am using my mobile data. The customer service is for themselves I gave up on calling them , the one thing I did not give up on is to review there services so less of us end up with lengthy contract and horrendous contract the better.

    Reliable broadband but horrible 'customer service'. They have been charging me between £4 and £55 for the past 10 months without explanation and, apparently, they "don't have a complaints department." They have taken money from my account in breach of the Direct Debit agreement on several occasions and charged me for broadband when I couldn't use it for 3 weeks because of their ineptitude. Avoid.

    Shocking treatment from Plusnet, having been with this company for nearly 6 years they cut us off without warning due to their incompetence. Left without Internet and landline for 8 days now and they phoned mobile yesterday to inform us we can't be reconnected - something to do with copper fibre. Going to have to wait 10 days now for a new provider to install and we will lose our landline number also. I work from home and it has been an absolute nightmare. I would avoid Plusnet at all costs, conflicting versions of why we got cut off by different members of staff. Not truthful.

    DO NOT,I repeat DO NOT enter into a contract with Plusnet, they are no better than scammers.
    When I queried an overcharge to my account they said it was for phone calls to premium rate numbers......I dont have a landline phone.
    Three months into my contract the price has increased by inflation plus 3.9 %, apparently this is an annual increase so I can expect it to increase again in March.
    When I looked at their broadband offers for new customers the same contract is being sold for less than I originally paid and they unwilling to do anything for me. So I say yet again DO NOT ENTER INTO A CONTRACT WITH PLUSNET.

    Switched few months back and still regretting, customer service is not helpful.. had switched once before but didn't have current experience.

    Broadband drops frequently and they have the worst router from which I don't even get proper signal upstairs. Can't wait for the contract to finish.

    I have been a plusnet customer for several years. From 2019 - Oct 2021 our household started having intermittent connection problems. A couple of times it's been the outside line to the property. However the engineers were out ASAP and fixed the speed issues very quickly. The other has been device problems, connecting to the internet and maintaining a consistent connection or web or social media sites not loading properly. I used my own router and moved back to plusnet's Hub1. This still was not much better. I now have purchased a new router which can handle many more devices (an AX3000 spec) router and replaced plusnet's default DNS addresses and googles with BTs and now all is behaving perfectly once again. I can't fault customer service, this has been excellent. Probably one of the best out of all the companies I've delt with. IM about to renew my broadband package and having looked at other reviews I dont think I'll be changing for a cheaper provider.

    Honestly hands down the worst company We’ve been with at least the other companies told the truth when they messed up, plusnet will saying it’s your router or wires or location when in fact they’re the issue, had a new router fitted a day ago after our Wi-Fi was down for 2 days, cause that’s the “issue” after an engineer with plusnet reviewed it, next night down once again, god awful.

    Please avoid at all costs. Terrible and inconsistent broadband, and customer service that never helped or cared. I've counted down the days on the 18 month contract and I'm so happy I'm now able to change provider.

    They even messed up my installation and left me without broadband for a week. But customer services sent me a 50p bill credit, and did nothing else.

    Very very very bad.

    The worst broadband provider - avoid at all costs .

    Internet keeps going down - plusnet tried to change frequency, sent a new router (just as useless) and still the service keeps dropping .

    Working from home both days and nights - and service drops overnight , yet no support to get this back up as they close at 10pm.

    Have called several times , yet because it’s not dropping often enough (they say) I would need to pay £180 to leave .

    Avoid avoid avoid !!!

    Impossible that Plusnet is one of the Which winners. They must pay them.
    Broadband speed is terrible, we just moved to them and now, we can't call by WhatsApp, Netflix films freezes, customer service is terrible, they make you wait on the phone for over 30 minutes waiting for you to give up and put phone down as they now you already call them for support. My broadband speed should been minimum 40gb and we only getting 13gb. They are terrible.

    The only reason we've connected to this ISP was because we had no other alternatives. The service is bad - speed was fluctuating, the line was unstable and during the first 2 months wasn't even hitting 40MB/s while paying for 60. The technical support is even worse though - they had to send their engineers (3 different ones mind you) during 2 months of troubleshooting. Just don't bother.

    Living in a rural location I accept a slow connection speed and I only have a choice of BT or Plusnet (BT owned) as providers but the difference between BT and Plusnet is customer service and reliability, absolutely none on both with Plusnet, avoid them, they are deliberately poor, there is no need for the poor quality router, the awkward replacement to a better router, the terrible automated support Bot (useless) and the total lack of a person to speak to. I contacted the telephone support line after 2 days of no connection to broadband and the answerphone told me to call back another day as they're busy at the moment and then cut me off. I'm stuck with the lack of choices but that day is coming with rural broadband being available to me in the near future, goodbye BT and Plusnet, you will not be missed.

    Broadband seems reliable and speed is good.

    Try getting through to customder service however; it is impossible. Huge waiting time on the phone until you get fed up and hang up. That alone is enough to want to leave them.

    I signed up to a Plusnet broadband deal for 18 months. It was installed by a openreach engineer who made a terrible mess of things. Mainly to my next door neighbours outside telecoms cable box. They didn’t have WiFi for a week after the engineer cut through cables in the box and also one cable in the exchange box at the other side of the street.
    My WiFi worked fine for three and a half days then stopped. I phoned Plusnet and they said it could take another two days for someone to look at what has gone wrong. After a few hours of wondering why I was paying for a service that was not providing a service I called Plusnet again and cancelled my contract.
    I expected a much better stable broadband connection.

    The routers that they send you are terrible. Ours made an awful noise all the time, I asked for a new one, and the new one did the same thing.

    Customer service is absolutely terrible. During the pandemic you couldn't get through to anyone. The phone lines were dead.

    Luckily I managed to get out of my contract early when we moved home because these idiots couldn't even transfer our broadband. That's right, they couldn't even keep a contracted customer because their systems are so bad.

    They tried to con me by saying "we will cancel your current contract and add you as a new customer". I knew I could get out at that point and luckily I did.

    Avoid.
